O my gentle raider:
see the stones you've stolen in your shoes.
Did you leave any on the path?
Come, gouge them from your sole.
Prise each painful pebble from the grooves
and thumb their sharpest edges down.
Heap them here, all of them.
Ah, it seems you have a mountain too.
Ascend this rocky road you've built
and know each step is made
on top of all that came before you:
felled trees and broken wings as well.
Oh, how light you must feel
after setting down a mountainside.
Please, leave it here and journey on.
Ignore its cracking crust.
Pass by its bursting buds. Let go.
The mountain is no longer yours.
Concern yourself with now.
Spread your arms beneath the sanguine sky
and to the wild wind proclaim:
I came. I came.
